Children deserve the best chance to reach their peak potential. We can help! A child’s nervous system is one of the first systems to develop and one of the last to be completed. It controls a child’s development and helps them grow, but must be working efficiently to do this properly. A nervous system free of subluxations is ideal, and chiropractic adjustments are a safe and natural way to create that environment. Diet, exercise, rest, and emotional stressors are other important factors. Chiropractic care addresses each patient as a whole and recognizes each of these factors contributing to your child’s health.
The birthing process, even under natural and controlled conditions, has the potential to be traumatic. The pushing stages of labor are especially compressing on the infant and can cause subluxation to the spine. Symptoms of these subluxations may not be immediate, but may manifest themselves as issues with breastfeeding, chronic ear infections, bed wetting, asthma, attention issues, sleep issues, reflux, colic, depressed immune system, and much more. It is never too early to have your child’s spine checked by a doctor of chiropractic. Our doctors have adjusted infants that were only hours old!
All adjusting procedures are modified to the age, size, weight, and unique condition of every infant and child. Adjustments are gentle and specific to their ever-growing bodies. For example, the amount of pressure it takes to adjust an infant is less than pushing through the skin of a ripe tomato!
